    Sony Sony Nex 5 or C3?

    The 5N is said to have an optional, excellent Electronic Viewfinder. In case of MF I would prefer to have that option. Better contrast than the LCD, because of shading. I would at least have a look at it before buying something. Jan

    Sigma DP2 issue

    Take a look at this link, Herman! You should try the SPP software first. This is very good. A crop function fails, however. Jan

    Possible new owner of a DP1

    Hi, my DP1s is my beloved one. You should take in account, that the camera is more or less a step back in time. You will work with RAW, but SPP is a nice (pre-)developer. Jan

    Leica lens array for possible M8

    You are familiar with full-frame lenses/cameras. On the M8 the mentioned lenses have focal lengths of about: 20, 28, 47, 70, 120 and 180 mm. My choice would be to keep the 28mm (Leica 21mm) for landscapes+streetshooting, the 70mm (Leica 50mm) for people and the 120mm (Leica 90mm) as a tele. The...

    Show 'Insect'

    We live in a tick area. As soon it is getting warmer ticks are awaking. In March the air was quite warm and the cat and all three dogs brought ticks home. In summer the situation is better. Our technic is to drown them in soap water. A bath in oil is not bad too. The foto is the first and only...

    3D Discussion

    Interesting. A viewpoint of the maker of 3D movies. My father was a 3d photographer: Leica-3d-adapter, Verascope, Viewmaster, etc. He never adapted the red/green technic, he worked with either double slideviewers or a polafilter-projector. The stereo effect was clearly visible, also for the...

    Which operating system(s) run on your electronic devices ?

    Since 1986 I use macs and I don't spend time using trojan removers or virus software. No problems encountered so far. Of course I am careful with emails from unknown sources. I have programmed some rules to find possibly infected emails. One of the ways Apples makes the situation safer, is by...

    NEX5 First Impressions

    Thanks very much for the review. Did you intend to take a zoom lens? I think of your remark about the front heaviness. No EVF connection yet, I believe. It is a nice concept, I am interested too. Jan

    Rollei goes 3D

    The interesting thing is, that the lenses are arranged vertically. I like these pikupiku pictures very much. If you have a video function on your camera, it is (relatively) easy to simulate the effect. The software for the mac fails, that is the time consuming point. It would help too, if the...

    What will your next (photographic) purchase be?

    Fourteen days ago I have bought a Sigma DP1s. They are relatively cheap now. The camera is slow in many respects: f/stop 4, reaction after taking a picture, the raw software. On the other hand I somehow like, that it is not complicated. No scene-modes, no "intelligent"-modes. You know what you...

    Should we have separate forums for different types of fixed lens cameras?

    No please. I like to compare the properties of the digital compacts as close as possible. There are already forums for the different makes. SERIOUS compacts is a nice description. Jan

    Photokina 2010

    I also wonder, why for instance the Sony Nex doesn't have an EVF. An almost full frame should be kept to the head in my opinion. I have no use for a swappable LCD -screen (not used to it perhaps). Jan

    Which aspect ratio you shoot and why ?

    I shoot 16:9 mostly. I like the landscape format. The Dlux-4 has a lever to change the ratio. As I - in the Leica forum - suggested, that it would be better to hide this option in the menu, I was attacked heavily. It seems, that there are people, who - just before taking a picture - decide what...

    The Leica look - what makes it, what is it?

    Some ideas for another 2 cent. Is it possible to say, that all photos of cameras from the company "Monkeybrand" do NOT show the Leica look? Otherwise we land at double-blind tests like the attempts to prove the effectiveness of homeopathy. During the film era the lens had to deliver the...

    Micro 4/3 Want advise to buy GF1 or any other portable DSLR

    I would take a serious look at the X1 (as I do too). Of course you need an OVF, that increases the format. Do you really need long distance shots? Do you really need a zoom? Is IQ not the most important? Perhaps you should wait until the end of September (Photokina). Jan

    I started photography with a IIIf. As the EOS line started, I bought one. At the moment I use a Dlux-4. My subjects are my family, pets and holidays. I am interested in 3d too. The forum interested me, because of the comparison of the compacts. Good work! Perhaps I change to m4/3 or APS. A...
